A Certain Nude Scene to be Filmed for Season 5

A Certain Nude Scene to be Filmed for Season 5

The cameras on the set of Game of Thrones roam far and wide to capture the magical world of Westeros. In fields, on the water, in the mountains and even inside historical churches. A church in the Croatian city of Dubrovnik is one such location where GoT season 5 has been shooting. But when certain citizens of Dubrovnik heard that a certain nude scene involving Cersei Lannister would be shot in their holy site they rallied to have the filming nixed. But fear not, nudity… I mean Game of Thrones fans!  The scene is BACK ON!  Well.. almost. A compromise has been reached and the church scene itself will be filmed on a green screen.  A...

Movie Review: 12 Years a Slave

Movie Review: 12 Years a Slave

12 Years a Slave is a dramatic, harrowing and exceptional piece of cinema which truly depicts one of the darkest times in American history. It’s unrelenting ability to draw you in to the story of Solomon Northup only makes it all the more harder to look away during it’s more unbearable scenes. With breath taking performances from Chiwitel Ejiofor, Lupita Nyong’o and Michael Fassbender and Steve McQueen at the directing helm, it really is no surprise that it won Best Picture at this years Academy Awards. It is a truly marvellous and tactful tribute to a brave group of people who cruelly suffered at the hands of a merciless plantation...

Bran & Hodor Take Game of Thrones Season 5 Hiatus

Bran & Hodor Take Game of Thrones Season 5 Hiatus

The world of Westeros has many characters.  So many characters, in fact that HBO can’t fit them all into every season. Who’s sitting on the sidelines this year? It would appear to be Bran and his lovable ride Hodor.  Speaking with Yahoo News actor Kristian Nairn (Hodor) said this: “We have a season off and we have a year’s hiatus, solely because I imagine our storyline is up to the end of the books.” Oh, really? He says it like we all knew as much but this reader/writer/fan most certainly did not! But for book readers, this almost makes sense. Bran’s story line (and thus Hodor’s) has almost reached the same...

David Chase Annoyed by THE SOPRANOS Question About Tony’s Last Scene

David Chase Annoyed by THE SOPRANOS Question About Tony’s Last Scene

We know, we know, this is old news already. We just decided to wait until the flap died down to take a look at the situation surrounding David Chase’s comment that THE SOPRANOS big boss man Tony Soprano was alive at series’ end. For anyone interested we will recall the incident and then shed light on the matter as to what is all means. From the start this writer was pretty elated about the news. In the post that started all the hubub Vox writer Martha Nochimson reminded us all of the final family gathering and the abrupt “cut to black” that ended the series in June of 2007. This is what she writes –   I had been talking with...

True Detective Season 2 Air Date Window Shifts

True Detective Season 2 Air Date Window Shifts

Many of you have been patiently waiting for news about the HBO 2014 sleeper hit True Detective. Ever since season 1 panned up into the stars and faded to black the biggest question on all of our minds has been “when will True Detective season 2 air?” Normally HBO is very consistent with their premiere dates. A series that premieres in the spring such as Game of Thrones will continue to air in subsequent springs each and every year. Many times we’ve even been able to predict the exact Sunday that an HBO series would premiere on well before they’ve made it official.  It’s like clockwork, in a way. But True...

Julia Louis-Dreyfus started her acceptance speech with a Thank You to HBO. But even the host got into it last night with this little joke about the Home Box Office: “Congratulations to HBO. They have 99 nominations tonight, the most of any network. Not to be outdone, NBC is also a network.” and then… “I gotta say: HBO is like the kid you grew up with who ended up doing way better than you expected. 99 nominations. When I first met HBO, all he had was Grease...
